Bluebell Wood (HDR)

By Ammonyte  
My first attempt at an HDR image, trying to capture these bluebells in the dark of the wood with the bright sky and sunshine in the background. I haven't been a great fan of many HDR images which look too stylised (IMHO), but I think this works OK. I didn't have a tripod, but photomatix's auto alignment seem to have sorted things out fairly well.

The HDR image was compiled from a bracket of 5 shots in steps of 0.7ev

1/13 1/15 1/25 1/40 1/60 @ F9.0 @ 16mm @ ISO400, shot RAW converted in Silkypix and HDR processed in Photomatix

I like it. What program did the HDR blend, or did you do it manually? Pity about the intruding branch.

Thanks, I used Photomatix Pro for the blend. Actually it's not a branch, but a bent sapling!
